Ben graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK in 2000 and joined the team in early 2016. His great passion in dentistry is for treating anxious children and adults and has been the focus of his career. He is highly experienced at using inhalational and intravenous sedation techniques and gained a Diploma in Conscious Sedation in Dentistry from the University of Newcastle (UK). He hopes to begin using this skill and experience soon in Melbourne. Bens' aim is to continue providing good quality family dentistry in a relaxed and calm environment. Ben also works at Melbourne University in a teaching capacity guiding dental students through their early clinical years.

Outside of dentistry Ben particularly enjoys travel and is lucky enough to have visited many parts of the world including South America, Europe, the Himalayas, South East Asia, India, the Middle East and Africa. He is also proud to have carried out volunteer dental work in Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. His other interests include photography, the arts, swimming, reading, walking, property renovation and skiing. Ben moved to Melbourne with his wife and his two young daughters and are incredibly excited to have begun exploring beautiful Victoria and beyond.
